De Oude Hortus

  Lange Nieuwstraat / Nieuwegracht     more than a year ago
Although many of its beautiful florae were moved to the modern botanical gardens of the Uithof on the premises of the university on the edge of the city, the so-called Old Hortus right in the middle of the historic city centre is still a green oasis of plants, flowers and trees. Initially founded in 1723, the garden was later re-designed in 19th-century landscape style. Don't miss the pride and joy of this special place which happens to be Europe’s oldest Japanese nut tree. Admission is free during the day.
